let's get to work. >> here is the main story we are following tonight on cnn, from new york city, across new england, up to ontario, deep snow fall, hurricane force winds now, plenty of cleaning up and digging out. across several states, a half million homes are without power tonight. take a look at this accumulation in wallingford, connecticut. that is 44 inches! the the city of poston saw the snow reach 21 inches deep there. that is where a tragic accident happened. a teenager claimed into this car to get warm. the tail pipe was blocked, in the snow and the boy died in a matter of minutes. >> ems were coming out of the boy, at around this point, i got a look at his face. eyes rolled back in his head. i have seen that look before. >> this is part of the country recovering from hurricane sandy, one of the most devastating storms to hit the east coast. it isn't a new phenomenon, experts say our weather patterns are changing due to global warming. we dispatched a team of team of cnn reporters across the country and around the world to investigate, how bad can these storms become? a

providence, right in front of city hall. there has not been a soul in sight in the last four hours that i have been here. that's how abandoned it is. an emergency vehicle drove up to see if we were doing all right here. i spoke to the governor today. i was with the mayor, i was in the emergency command center tonight, chris. their real concern, they said we know we're going to have power outages. the issue is how many. if the snow doesn't get more dry, if it doesn't get colder, frankly, they're expecting many power outages. they say a prolonged storm is what they fear. not only afterwards do they have the plowing issue. they have the snow removal issue. one thing that makes this very different than 1978, the governor told me that technology today is so much better. i saw the gps they have on their plows now. the technology is so much better that they are able to prepare in advance, get those plows exactly where they need to be, get the cars off the roads in advance, that they're not going to have the same issues. you had 26 deaths here in 1978 during that blizzard. and here you go, anothe
lot. in south boston, but the reality is some 600 plows have been out throughout the city all night trying to battle this blizzard. throughout the state, you've got about 4,000 pieces of equipment, the national guard numbering about 5,000, who are on the standby when the teeth of the storm hits. just about an hour or so from now. we blizzard like conditions, if you look up the street, you can barely see up the street. simply because you have this powdery like snow which is blowing all over the place and making things very difficult. i just want to give you an example of how cold it is here. in between live shots, i run to my truck which is being buried in the snow drift, but my photographing stays out so you can get live bumps, live pictures of what is going on. let me show you, hand that to my producer. this is hard. he's like the tin man out here. it's trying to -- thanks, bob, for doing that for us. bob the photographer, who is now literally frozen stiff. >> wow. >> you can see he's still out here shooting, giving us an idea of how cold it gets out here. >> amazing job that all o
for our own security. we've actually relied in over 275 different cities around the world, where our embassies and consulates are, we rely on host governments, on security forces, on the militaries and police forces in host countries so it's a joint responsibility, and obviously the state department will have to look into this and try to determine who is responsible. >> nicholas burns, former ambassador, thank you so much for joining us this morning. we'll have much more from turkey later on ins in ns s i"cnn news" >>> the colorful mayor of new york city has died, much beloved. his signature line? >> am i doing all right? am i doing okay? >> yeah, we remember that, the 88-year-old koch had been in and out of the hospital recently. he died of congestive heart failure. his funeral will be monday in a synagogue near central park. koch served three terms as mayor starting in 1978. he later found a new rule for his jubilant combative personality on the people's court and hosted a radio show and never left his beloved hometown. let's bring in john berman in new york, so what will be the ma

. indra petersons reporting live from boston this morning. now to new york city where wind gusts of 50 miles per hour could cut power to thousands. foot of snow and coastal flooding also predicted. this blizzard on the exact same path as superstorm sandy, that could mean more misery for people still trying to recover from that storm. alison kosik is at columbus circle in manhattan. what is new york doing to prepare? >> reporter: right now we certainly are feeling a nice steady flow of snow coming down and not really sticking except for one or two snowballs we're making on the side here. you look out here, everybody's going to work as usual just like a normal bad weather day. everybody knows what's coming later and that's the tricky point. new york city mayor michael bloomberg is concerned about the cleanup because the storm is expected to really hit around rush hour when everybody's trying to get home, that could make it difficult for those salt spreaders and those plows to get through the streets but also extra trains are coming out for those who live on long island, the lirr is addin
the city of providence, the state of rhode island is trying to deal with this morning. that is massive power outages, wet, thick snow falling on trees, on power lines. it means about nearly 200,000 homes here in rhode island are without power. that is what they're dealing with at this hour. some good news, some of those bridges out to places like newport, rhode island, have reopened. they closed late last night because of these sustained 58-mile-per-hour wind gusts we were getting. those have reopened. i-95, that huge interstate through massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island still closed, though. roads here in providence closed a's well since 5:00 eastern right now. illegal to be out driving on them. stay home. even though it looks better, stay home. we had a chance last night to hang out with this guy, let's bring him into the picture, colonel pete gaynor, who heads emergency transportation. snow plows, gps tracking their every move. you were up all night. give us a sense of the situation now here in providence and broader rohode island. where does it stand? >> it's been a long nigh
. about a day away from hitting the east coast. we keep talking boston and this could hit new york city. >> providence, hartford, boston up to new hampshire and maine. all of the big cities across the northeast under the gun here. if you are along i-95, it's going to be a line where north of you somewhere it's going to be 20 to 25 inches. south of you it will be two. that's a big range. they will sneak into part of the forecast and not get to the northern part. new york city right now, this computer we are talking about is 15.3 inches of snow. providence is 28.3. the mayor of boston, we showed the picture said please, everybody off the road by noon. city schools are closed. we don't want you stuck on the freeway in a blizzard. this is going happen. people are going to get out with three inches of snow on the ground. they think they will be okay, but they are not. they are going to get stuck in this. three inches now, but two hours later, the be inig inches and not going to be able to get out of the car. this happens all the time. get off the road and stay home. >> here's a heads up. i h
that freed that little boy. victor blackwell, live from midland city, alabama this morning. i know you're very excited to be sharing this information, victor. what do we know about the raid and why law enforcement actually decided to go in? >> good morning, zoraida. two reasons primarily. the first is because authorities say they observed jimmy lee dykes with a gun and the second reason is because in the day leading up to that raid, the communications with dykes had broken down. so they realized they could not wait any longer to go in and rescue ethan. ethan is safe. this is a photograph of the 5-year-old being taken into a hospital after nearly a week being held in an underground bunker in alabama. >> he's fine. he's laughing, playing, joking, eating, the things you would expect a normal 5-year-old or 6-year-old young man to do. he's very brave, he's very lucky. the success story is that he is out safe and doing great. >> reporter: the dramatic end came after officers saw 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes holding a weapon. they felt they could not hold off any longer. >> at this point, fbi
on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so
providence, rhode island. rare that you see a car going by. almost every business, city hall, everything is closed here, just like in massachusetts, the governor in connecticut also having that 4:00 ban on any cars and i wouldn't be surprised if it happens here very soon as well. i want to take you on our journey getting here. we just arrived here. it took us over five hours to get here from new york city, a trip that really shouldn't take any more than three hours. along the way, very slow going, light traffic. lots of snow plows but also some very serious accidents. we saw a jackknifed tractor-trailer that ran right into the median. we saw a huge semi that just fell off the side of the highway. we took a picture of that for you guys. that was consistent all the way up here. if you head up to maine, i want to show you some pretty dramatic video in maine. a 19-car pileup in maine. bottom line, the governor saying not a time for sightseeing, not a time for playing around. this is very, very serious. in 1978, 27 inches of snow, 26 deaths. they think this storm could be as bad or worse and

new york city. not a hurricane, but we will have hurricane winds with this coming up, brooke. >> i'm coming back to you. we'll talk about the dense northeast, tens of millions of people, many of whom lived through sandy. first, the good news. skiers who planned trips right before the valentine's day weekend here, those folks, you called it right. as we look at these pictures from maine, do keep in mind those winds are going to whip. and before this thing is over, you will have zero visibility, snow blowing sideways, deep, deep drifts, that sort of thing. want to talk about boston. look at this. this is -- you can't see it, it is fenway park. you'll recognize fenway if there wasn't snow and ice on the lens of this camera. snow started there right around 9:30 this morning. and we're hearing boston could break its all time snow record. the all time record set in either 1978 in that deadly winter storm, blamed for dozens of deaths, or more recently in 2003. take your pick. 27 inches each time. boston, right now, is under a snow emergency. no on street parking. schools are closed. publi
of these were to explode over a big city, that's the he said of the big city. i can't express this enough. so we could as human kind get together and go looking for these things. these things are going so fast, the atmosphere is just like concrete. >> i wanted our viewers to see this again because it really is so incredible when you look at the video and the sound there. is there any risk when you talk about the astroid getting so close to earth that the same thing could happen? >> this? oh, no. if that astroid would hit the earth that we're talking about today that's getting close, there would be significantly more damage than this. and, no, it is not going to happen. it does not get that close. it does get inside the big ring that we have, 22,000 miles in space. but if you take a look, if you make a sphere of that ring, you're talking about 8 million square miles of area out there and only just a few things to hit. we'll be just fine. the earth is in good shape and so are all the satellites. the odds are not zero, but i could probably win the lottery instead. >> were the russians warn that had
and we just felt our building shake. >> reporter: a massive explosion at one of kansas city's most popular restaurants. >> we thought that a car had literally ran into our apartment. >> reporter: the late night blast yours dozens plus this. >> i'm seth macfar lane and i'll be hosting the oscars this year. >> we sit down with seth mac farlane and who he'll go to for oscar advice. we're live in "the newsroom." good morning, thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. oscar pistorius will have to wait at least one more day to learn if he will be granted bail. the hearing for the olympic sprinter adjourned a little more than an hour ago. diser toious faces a premeditated murder charge in the valentine's day killing of his girlfriend reeva steenkamp. the defense attorney gave a cross-examination of the police investigator who responded to the crime scene of the home. here are the key points, the officer conceded a substance found in the house may not have been tst testosterone as he previously testified. there was no sign of an assault on steenkamp's body. the investigator
